Getting More Out Of Your Atari, an article by Chris Crawford and Lane Winner, probably written while both were employed by Atari.  The two authors were both collaborators on De Re Atari. This appears to be an early draft (probably written in 1980) of the article "An Introduction to Atari Graphics" published in the January 1981 issue of Byte .  Kevin Chase blogged about the program from that article .

Presenting The Atari 1200. Circa 1982. (This is obviously before the computer was named the 1200XL.) Harry Stewart told me: "Here is the outline for an internal presentation of the Atari 1200 to ???   The first two pages are the outline of the entire presentation, and the following pages contain the material that I presented.  From the looks of the material the audience must have been technical, rather than management.  The presenters were Paul Laughton, Scott Scheiman, and myself."

These pictures of Atari 8-Bit hardware were included on the Atari POOLDISK 1.0 CD-ROM and are in the public domain. They were on the CD-ROM in .PCX format, dated 1995, and converted to .PNG by Kevin Savetz in 2015. The resolution is pretty low, I suppose due to the nature of digital cameras in 1995. I am also uploading the original .PCX files in a .ZIP, though I'm not sure why you'd need them. The description in the pictures directory says: "In this directory, you see our collection of...
